Defence Home Ownership Assistance Scheme

Dear Mrs Wicks

Thank you for your letter of 18 June 2018 regarding the Referral of Petition EN0263, which effectively requests the removal (or substantial increase in time) of the two year limitation to access a subsidy certificate under the Defence Home Ownership Assistance Scheme Act 2008 (Cth).

I regret to advise at this point in time, that I am unable to properly reply to this petition. Instead, I am currently seeking detailed advice in relation to this request, which will require inter-departmental coordination by the Departments of Defence, Veterans' Affairs and Finance.

As such, I undertake to provide a final response to the Committee by 1 December 2018.

I trust the above information clarifies the current status of this request by the petition members and I thank them for the time taken to prepare their petition.

Yours sincerely,

from the Minister for Defence Personnel, Mr Chester (Petition No. EN0263)
